Ourlads' Profile:

2019 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about BENNY SNELL JR: Kentucky, 5103 224 4.65. Junior entry and three year starter from Westerville, OH. Has NFL lineage. Son and nephew to former NFL running backs. After his freshman All-America season in 2016, Snell went on to earn first-team All SEC honors in 2017 and 2018, leaving Kentucky as the program’s all time leading rusher. Has a lot to be impressed by on paper when it comes to production and consistency, but there are athletic holes in his game that can prevent his power running style to become a consistent presence in the NFL. He is an old fashioned, between the tackles back that can find a role and be reliable, but don’t expect much more. An angry bull that always sees red. Runs with a chip on his shoulder and wants to be the aggressor. A consistent tackle breaker that will fall forward. Reliable between the tackles and can really deliver a blow if he gets a head of steam downhill. Has a nose for the end zone and field markers, excellent in short yardage situations. Holds the ball tight to his body. Has a good blend of hesitation and aggression. Lacks the burst to outrun angles. Fringe acceleration. Below average quickness, agility, and long speed. Didn’t factor much as a receiver and his blocking didn’t have much after initial contact. One dimensional and lacking upside to be much more. 2018 stats: 1449 yds, 5.0 ypc, 16 TD, 17 rec, 105 yds, 6.2 ypr, 0 TD. OSR:20/24. Fourth/fifth round. (A-31, H-9 3/8, BP-16, SS-4.35).
